The Board of Deputies has met Sky News executives to discuss the broadcaster’s coverage of the recent upsurge of violence in Israel.
The Board’s chief executive Gillian Merron said: “We raised the way in which headlines in the UK media have frequently minimised the violence against Israelis and expressed the community's deep concern that the context of anti-Jewish incitement was often missing from reports.
The two organisations agreed that Board leaders would meet Sky’s Middle East reporters in order to calm fears about media bias and strengthen ties between the two bodies.
“We very much welcome the offer of ongoing contact with Sky News in the interests of ensuring what we all want to see: impartial, well-informed and balanced coverage,” Ms Merron said.
Sky News head John Ryley said: "I believe that Sky's reporting has striven to be the best possible in a complex and fast moving situation. I acknowledge the need to ensure that our coverage provides the full context at all times.”
